“El queso”  is a food of high nutritional value, being essentially a tissue-forming food. It should be noted its content in animal proteins of very good biological value and its contribution to mineral calcium, which constitutes the basis for the composition of the human skeleton.


“El Queso” | Cheese History and Culture

In excavations of stilt houses on the shores of Lake Neûchatel (Switzerland), remains of perforated clay pots dating back at least six thousand years before our era were exhumed. It was concluded that it could be a strainer (encella) designed to drain the curdled milk. The Swiss were very pleased with these conclusions, as they saw another consecration for their country, which continues to be one of the most outstanding places of cheese tradition.

Now, what milk would the lake populations have used? The whole problem lies there. Although at that time the domestication of the goat and the sheep began to change the way of life of the populations of the Mediterranean perimeter, it is not yet known whether they practiced milking and the preservation of dairy products. As for cows, they only became part of the Alpine landscape after the Roman conquest of Valais, fifty-three centuries later.

The Bible does not attach any importance to cheese at the beginning of its chronology. Although he mentions poor Abel as the first shepherd, he only refers to curdled milk and butter. Abraham, his descendant, who had inherited “rich flocks” offers “cream and milk with the calf” to the three angels who come to visit him (Genesis, XVIII-8).

How to translate cheese in Spanish?

If we go back twenty centuries before Abraham and go to Sumeria, we find another anonymous shepherd, but whose existence is fully attested by the accounts that he carefully kept from the fortieth year of the reign of King Shulgi. From these accounts (engraved on clay tablets in the National Museum of the Middle East in Berlin), we know that in eight years the herd of cattle of our operator increased fivefold and that its production went from 8 liters of cheese a year to 63.3 liters/year, which shows its excellent performance.

Almost at the same time, in the kingdom of Elam, a goat offers its milk to the pasture under the benevolent gaze of the Goddess of fertility sitting near two jugs of milk. It is a stamp deposited in the Museum of Natural History in Chicago. Finally, in the seventeenth century BC, the legal code of the Amorite King Hammurabi II establishes, as for meat, the taxes levied on the dairy products of Babylon.

Goats and sheep are easily adapted to any climate where the slightest weed sprouts, and in the case of the former where thorny plants grow. Both were for some time the only ones that provided the majority of the milk consumed or milked. Cattle, heavily exploited as draft animals, could hardly do so.

The invention of cheese, therefore, took place from goat (goat in Spanish) or sheep milk, which was more easily obtained. It is easy to imagine how the milk curdled quickly, either due to heat and carelessness or because of the clotting effect of the presence of natural enzymes in the stomach of young ruminants.

What is the origin of ice-cream?

The origin of “helado” is ancient, the Chinese, many centuries before Jesus Christ, mixed the snow from the mountains with honey and fruits, and the caliphs of Baghdad mixed it with fruit juices. The latter gave it the name of sharbets, which means drink, from which comes the word sorbet used today. It was Marco Polo, or so it is believed, who introduced in Europe the formulas learned in his travels for the preparation of “helado”, and for a long time, due to the few means available for their preparation, they were only delicacies of kings. These first water ice creams were followed by milk ice creams, which began to become popular when in 1660 the Italian Procopio invented the machine that homogenized fruits, sugar, and ice, thus obtaining a true “helado”. Since that time and until today there have been many discoveries that have favored the development and improvement of this product and that have led to industrial “helado”, whose production has been possible because to inventions such as that of the American Nancy Johnson, who in 1846 created the first automatic “helado” maker.   Read more about the food in Spanish
